Elizabeth Smith-Ensign  left us Sunday July 15, 2012, in peace. Born to Edward and Julia Meyer October 4, 1924, in Florence, WI, Betty learned to love the outdoors of "up north". The valedictorian and "Miss Florence County" of 1942 moved to war-time Chicago where she began studies in accounting at Northwestern. She became a secretary to her future husband, Norman F. Smith and the postwar jobs brought them to a permanent home in west Toledo, where they raised their 2 daughters. Betty became active in PTA, church youth group, hosting foreign students and being "mom" to all. She enjoyed bridge clubs, dancing and was a founding member of the West Y Dolphins synchronized swimmers. After Fred's death in 1977, she worked as a faculty secretary at the new MCO campus until retirement. She met and married Hoyt Ensign in 1987 and together they enjoyed an active social life as members of Trilby Methodist, Toledo Ski Club, the Polish-American Band. On any given night that a big band played, you could see Hoyt and Betty jitterbug away. In 2009, mom reached her final goal of a B.A. at University of Toledo. We miss her terribly. Betty is survived by her loving husband, Hoyt; daughters, Sarah Smith (Kathy La Fountain), Juli Wemmer (Diane Nagelkirk), Taeko Shima, and Sheyla Lira (Vitor); grandson, Casey Smith; stepchildren, Marc Ensign (Marti), Eric Ensign (Maria), Wendy Trom (Kevin), Sarah Zervis, Crissey Ensign, Andy Ensign, and their children, Mason, MacKenzie, Brooke, Jackson, Joey, Sophie, Christin, Ashley and Logan.
